The Neff/Purcell Sewer Line Segment connects the Southeast Interceptor (SEI) to the existing sewer collection system.
This segment runs in Neff Road from Medical Center Drive to Purcell Blvd, and in Purcell Blvd to the north, and then west to Moody Park. Completion of this link allows the Southeast Interceptor to be put in service. The added service that the SEI provides includes:
- Relief to capacity issues in southwest, southeast, northeast, and central areas in Bend
- The ability to decommission up to 24 sewer pump stations
- Creates availability of gravity sewer service to a significant number of unsewered properties
SEI is an underground 30-inch gravity sewerline that will convey wastewater to the Plant Interceptor pipe in northeast Bend, which flows to the Water Reclamation Facility. Construction of the SEI is divided into several phases and schedules.
EFFECTIVE MARCH 13, 2018
Neff Road has been restored and is open to traffic in both directions! Small portions of work remain, including landscaping, this will take place behind shoulder closures as necessary and will not impact two-way traffic.
Thank you for your support and patience during construction !
EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 7, 2018:
SOUTHEAST INTERCEPTOR IS 100% ACTIVE & FLOWING
All sewer pipe work is complete and the Southeast Interceptor is officially active!
This is huge milestone for the City as it allows additional flows to be added to the system and initiates pump station decommissioning as described above. Crews will now focus their efforts on restoring the road, sidewalks, and landscape. Please be aware of changes along the Neff corridor as we work to complete these surface restorations.
NEFF/PURCELL SEGMENT CONTACTS
The City has contracted with DOWL, a local engineering firm, to provide construction management and public outreach services for the SEI construction projects.
